Curtiss P-40B (Tomahawk IIA). 1/48th. Trumpeter
Trumpeters P-40B in 1/48 has copped a fair bit of criticism on various web sites. Mainly directed at the cockpit and rivet detail.

Mustang MK. IVA. 48th scale, Tamiya
This natural metal Mustang Mk IVA (P-51K-10-NT, U.S. serial 44-12355) was the personal aircraft of Wing Commander (Flying) James Storrar and was fitted with an Aero Products prop, Dallas hood and exhaust shrouds. There exists much controversy when it comes to the colours applied to Storrar's aircraft and what I present is my best assessment based on the available references.

The 'Edmonton Special' P-51D Mustang. Hasegawa 1/32 scale
As good as the Hasegawa Mustang is, it does not hold a candle to the latest P-51D's released by Tamiya or Hasegawa in 1/48th scale. Keeping this in mind, I decided that if this model was to compete on equal ground with these newer releases it would need some help.

P-35A, Seversky - Hobbycraft, 1/48th
It was not a bad little kit. The only incorrect part that I found was the wind screen. I stretch molded one to replace the original...

C-46 Commando. Williams Brothers. 1/72nd Kit 72-346
he kit was designed in the mid-1970’s and compares poorly with more modern kits but it is the only kit of C-46 and it is accurate according to measurements and comparison with photos. Before starting assembly of the kit, the modeler must plan to carve plastic to finish the kit. This is because Williams Brothers molded features from various models of the C-46 into this kit and modelers will have to modify something, no matter which version they choose to build.

P-39Q/N Airacobra. Academy. 1/72nd. Kit 2177
I was very pleased with the final appearance of the model. It accurately represents the appearance and sit of the original aircraft and made a good addition to my collection.

F4U Corsair. Academy. 1/72nd
All in all, I was very pleased with the final result. It is a good representation of the Corsair to add to my collection.

Vultee P-66 Vanguard. Sword. 1/72nd
The completed model looks really good and convincing when compared at similar angles and scale distances (as I always do with a finished model) to photos of the real thing. It is not as simple to build as a mass-produced long-run kit, but as with many of today's short-run kits, a little effort and patience rewards you with something that looks far better than many big name products. A must for the USAAF WWII fighter enthusiast, the Sino-Japanese war buff and anyone else who just wants something that little bit different in their collection. Nice box art too.
